There are many amazing things to do in Florence. If you're an outdoors person and love the fresh air, Florence is the place for you. For picturesque parks and trails visit Deibert Park and McFarland Park which are located on the Tennessee River and so boast beautiful views across the water. River Heritage Park is also a great park to go for a picnic and feed the birds. If you love animals and want to explore natural habitats, Key Cave National Wildlife Refuge is a wild animal sanctuary and nature preserve, perfect for both adults and children alike. Afterwards, stop by the Wilson Park to drop a penny in the fountain for good luck and see W. C. Handy’s statue -- the father of blues.
For the golfers of your group, the Blackberry Trail Golf Course rents equipment to visitors and has an impressive course based in a tranquil environment. If you are traveling with children and want a fun-filled day out, the Children Museum of the Shoals is home to brilliant interactive exhibits.
For a little history and interesting landmarks, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Rosenbaum House is like taking a step back in time. This is the only Frank Lloyd Wright property in Alabama, and the museum offers guided tours for visitors interested in its past. Elsewhere, the Wichahpi Commemorative Stone Wall is an old, large stone wall -- dating back more than 30 years -- and a tribute to the Yuchi Indian tribe. The wall has a somewhat philosophical vibe as the person who constructed the wall chose stones after an elder of the tribe said everything passes, but stones remain. For a spectacular view, the Renaissance tower is a 26 storey building and the tallest attraction in Alabama.
The best areas to stay are the harbor area or the historical downtown area. There are plenty of great vacation rentals in Florence, such as a studio-style pool house which is perfect for a couple, or if you are traveling with family how about a house with 2 bedrooms 1 bath and a private pool? Most properties tend to come with full kitchens, a living room, and an amazing view. If you need a vacation rental which offers 2 bedroom or more, the harbor area is better.
